It's really stupid if you ask me.
Actually, I was just saying what the original purpose of my posting on here was. I think its AWESOME that everyone has their own opinion on here (believe me, as a new fan, I've learned quite a bit more about Evangelion in basically all ways thanks to the amazing people on here.) I was never trying to shoot down anyone's own opinion on it if it looks like that, I apologize, that WAS NOT my original intention. I whole-heartedly think that both versions are FANTASTIC and have their own strengths and weaknesses. It doesn't matter which version people like, really, at the core it's all the same stuff, and really at the core for this whole site, we're all Evangelion fans at heart, that's what matters. (Unfortunately, Eva has the curse of being a very divisive anime for fans. )
For me, I just wanted the most accurate to get the full meaning out of everything, so I can appreciate the show to its fullest (as if I haven't done so already. .) That's why I watch both Dub and Sub for anime I watch (I learned in some cases you have to like with Fullmetal Alchemist, the only other "real anime" I've watched) and that's kinda where I accidentally slipped the whole thing in with translations when I was talking about the Dub (even though there's another part of the forum for the dub entirely...yeah, sorry, Reichu! I posted it there now though! )
